A Bellwether Case, or not?

"LA Times, October 10, 2013

A Los Angeles County jury handed Toyota Motor Corp. a significant legal victory Thursday, clearing it of responsibility in a 2009 crash of a Camry that accelerated out of control, killing the driver.

After six days of deliberation, jurors rejected the theory that Toyota had a hand in the death of Noriko Uno. She was killed in Upland after her Camry suddenly accelerated, hitting a telephone pole and a tree, nearly cutting the vehicle in half.

The Uno case was the first of a group of "bellwether" cases, selected by a Superior Court judge, to go to trial."

Wow, how many of these does Toyota have to respond to? Every Camry accident since 2005? If the lady didn't try to brake (I assume they had specific evidence for this point) of course Toyota isn't liable. Mick

Exactly! Itís probably one of the most ridiculous cases Iíve ever heard of. Think about it, every car maker that failed to provide a safety feature that another maker did provide, would be liable if they were hurt in a crash. Craziness! Toyota needs to be left alone and concentrate on the death trials and these people that want to confuse the issues and bring unneeded attention need to stop. This is why I suggest people not believe what they read in the media. You have to do your own research and study the facts carefully. Only after that you can make an educated determination on any given topic.

Toyota will survive the media crucifixion that's characterized this SUA issue all along.
Eventually the trial lawyers will get tired of trying and will shut down all their frivolous lawsuits.
Even JJFADS will give up and stop trying to put Toyota out of busines.
And the sun will continue to rise in the east.

This case being a bellwether for personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits is one of 85 and unrelated to the
sua recalls. When the death and injury sua cases begin thatís when more information will come out and there are 200 of those in California alone. I would be surprised if Toyota can get by without some guilty verdicts.

Then why Root,(Or should I refer to you by your real username?) do you continually contradict your own advice?
You advocate "leaving Toyota alone", and that "people who confuse the issue and bring unneeded attention need to stop"
Yet you alone are by far the most prolific anti Toyota advocate in these forums. You never stop dissing Toyota and dispensing confusion.
How does one dispense perfectly good advice on one hand, then at the same time routinely do the exact opposite?
Big question.

On the other hand, there's no question about this.....
A California jury on Thursday Oct. 10, 2013 rejected claims that Toyota was responsible for the death of a woman in a 2009 whose family alleged that a crash that resulted from a sudden and uncontrollable acceleration.

Detroit is on life support(the little 4-ford, gm, chevy and dodge). We bailed out Govt Motors..let them bail out Detroit!Its payback time! No matter what Detroit write or says GM owes us billions and will never be able to pay it back....just the Facts. Toyota is worth more than all domestics combined in quality and engineering. Toyota never mentions a little 4 anything in their commercials, they dont have to, they own the competition. The littel 4 (ford) mentions Toyota in all their commercials....thats how scared they are..Toyota was the first to offer a 6 speed in a pickup( now, one of the 4 offered an 8 speed), Toyota first to offer surround airbags in a pickup(now a domestic offers 10). In 2007 the dodge ram v8 got 10mpg the Tundra V8 got 18mpg..the Chevys get about 14mpg. Toyota is lightyears ahead of any domestic product...hands down!!!!!!!!!

My sentiments exactly. When the actual SUA death trials get moving I believe we should learn more. One cannot overlook the sadness of the family in the personal injury case as that is a sad situation but we must also remember, her car was not even part of the SUA recall.

Have to agree. This family was given bad information from the start. The attorney should have to "pay back".

Why should an attorney have to pay back if they thought something was wrong? I'm not saying this about Toyota this goes for anything. What was lost? I don't get it. Pay back what?

What was wrong is the attorney most likely tried to sue Toyota to make a quick buck. The family was probably told something false and the attorney went on and tried to sue for cash while in the back of his mind didnít give one care about the family or their situation.

Speak for yourself--and all the other pseudo usernames you go by.
People who use Faux ISPs and post ugly, racist, and homophobic vulgarity about others are definitely delusional and strange.
That's what's really transparent.
